This cow is Patrick’s favorite. He likes her coloring and the rings around her horns. The rings, as you may have already guessed, tell the age of the cow. This girl is thirteen this year.

Kaylynn(sp?) stood proud and beautiful, even with a sprig of hay hanging out of her mouth.

Um hey pretty lady. Who does your makeup? It’s gorgeous dahling.

I had to put the wide angle lens on for this shot. She was following me closely, probably with the hope I’d feed her some cake.

This dark beauty was by the creek the whole time. She was uninterested in her guests.

Scratch that itch babe. You know she’s hitting the target because look at her tongue!

At the end of our tour, the sun went behind the clouds and it got colder. These yearlings met us at the truck but were a little shy and didn’t stick around long.
We had a great time visiting with the Wilson’s and the cattle and look forward to going back when it warms up!

    Very nice pictures…. they look so gentle. We went to a safari in Ohio and we were feeding different animals, and longhorns is one of them, the magnificence of those long horns was great but it scared us. It seemed like anytime they swing their heads, our car could get smashed. But we enjoyed the trip. 🙂

      Thank you! They really were quite gentle, even with the babies on them. They are so aware of their horns though. They can judge the distance and space that they have to maneuver in and it’s very impressive. Glad you enjoyed your trip!

      Thanks Karen. They are gentle because their owners are gentle and handle them with such care. Not sure I’d want to get in a pen with a wild one! 🙂

      Oh I know! They kind of look like little devil horns don’t they? Oh the awkward teenage years, eh? 🙂

      Thanks Laurie! She is gorgeous isn’t she?! I saw a few calves with similar coloring and I wonder if hers own calf will turn out like her. Just love ’em!

    Part II was as wonderful as Part I. Fascinating animals. I love the angle of the shot just below the dark beauty. From the side, the horns are misleading in size (as in small).

      Oh I know, very misleading. Glad you like these Lenore. Hope you like tomorrow’s. Just one more left but she’s my favorite. 🙂

    OH MY!! those are longlonghorns!!! you say they are gentle, and I believe you but if I had seen one of them coming towards me with those long long horns, I would have been afraid. Now I now they can be trusted! isn`t it amazing mother nature? a good thing I was born as a human being and not as a longhorn. My sense of space is null, I would suffer from chronicle horn-ache if I were one of them!!! LOL

      Ha! horn-ache. Hilarious!! They are gentle because their owners are gentle with them. If you saw one in the wild, I don’t know if you’d want to challenge her! Yeah really, I’d struggle with space too with those things. I don’t know how they do it. Must be really heavy.

        don`t worry!! I wouldn`t challenge the gentle ones either!! just in case!! but probably I`d like to be near them. You took really beautiful pictures!! they were good models!
        I imagine they are heavy and I could lose my balance!!
